. let's start with this. rupert murdoch and his son were supposed to be the focus of a british parliament hearing today in london but they were upstaged momentarily by an intruder who somehow managed to get very, very close to the murdochs, too close as you're about to see. watch. so no official word yet as to who exactly that guy in the plaid shirt was. we know he was shouting you greedy billionaire, but he pushed a plateful of shaving cream into rupert murdoch's face before he was grabbed, first by his wife, if you watch it, not in this shot but you can see she was wearing that bright pink jacket, and then by authorities. they did take a quick break. he then continued jacket off to answer questions before parliament's committee on media, culture and sports. so the members wanted to know this, how much did rupert murdoch and his top executives know about the phone hacking by reporters on his payroll, how closely he followed day-to-day operations. the newspaper closed because of this whole thing. and how responsible he feels about this entire affair. >> do you accept that ultim
for an investigation of rupert murdoch's media empire as the company pays a new price for its phone hacking scandal. could a massive probe now under way in britain happen here in the united states? and the obama money-maybing machine. who's behind the cash and can the republicans compete? >>> president obama and the congressional leadership are under enormous pressure right now, about 40 minutes into their latest round of debt crisis talks. they haveless than three weeks until the deadline to raise the legal limit on the federal debt. and by all accounts, they're still very far apart. what if anything emerges from this meeting? consider the very dire warnings from the chairman of the federal reserve. ben bernanke using very strong words today, telling congress that the global financial system would be thrown into enormous disarray. that's a direct quote, if the u.s. treasury is deadbeat on its debt. >> ff we went so far as to default on the debt, it would be a major crisis. the treasury security is view as the most safest and liquid in the world. it's the foundation for much of our financial system
this hour, also the connection between the rupert murdoch scandal today and the mobster guy. remember him? and the interview on tonight's show is so exciting it made me and several segment producers -- made us break something in the office while we were preparing for the interview. while prepping tonight's interview, we broke some of the ceiling tiles outside my office door. i am very sorry, and i'll pay for it. >>> this is the mayor of london, his name is boris. he's in the conservative party. when questioned about it last year, here's what he had to say about the rupert murdoch phone hacking scandal. >> cooked up by labor party. >> cooked up by the labor party. phone hacking, made up by liberals. no such thing. where did mayor boris get his information? mayor boris got his information from john yates, the number two police officer in london. john yates, who it just so happens had to resign as the number two police officer in london just this week as did the number one police officer in london, the chief of scotland yard. that is just one of the ways the whole rupert murdoch scandal is g
in your past life. what do you think about what's going on in britain, the murdoch scandal? >> i think it is hard for us to imagine the profound shock to the system that this has been for great britain. i spent a lot of time there. my character lives there so we spend a lot of time in england. england is going through something of a social crisis, there's an epidemic of crime and public drunkenness in the country. they think their culture has been coarsing a great deal. miliband made an impassioned speech yesterday and they need to wake up and get things right in the country. they are going through a difficult period. >> daniel silva, the book is "portrait of a spy." fabulous. we'll be right back. i love that my daughter's part fish. but when she got asthma, all i could do was worry ! specialists, lots of doctors, lots of advice... and my hands were full. i couldn't sort through it all. with unitedhealthcare, it's different. we have access to great specialists, and our pediatrician gets all the information. everyone works as a team. and i only need to talk to one person about her care.
's going on with murdoch. pretty juicy stuff over there and i bet you people in the nonnewscorp world are just licking your chops? (laughter) you just love this story? shouldn't you have to... shouldn't you non-murdoch papers have to recuse yourself? you can't be objective. >> do the math. you've got a $40 billion big blob that owns fox news, fox sports, "new york post," "wall street journal." they closed 168-year-old newspaper is and they're run by an 80-year-old i go guy who almost got hit by a pie in parliament and he was saved by his hot chinese wife. (laughter) that's a great story. >> stephen: that is a great story. >> come on! >> stephen: isn't it much ado about nothing? how bad of a deal is it to hack people's phones? that's journalism! (laughter) how do you know what the truth of a story is unless you are willing to do anything? ed myrrh row said "by any means necessary." (laughter) >> i don't think he meant hacking into a 13-year-old murder victim's phone and... >> stephen: okay you're playing the 13-year-old murder victim, card. what about the 4,000 other people who got hac

are now suggesting that deputy chief operating officer james murdoch contradicted himself during his testimony to british lawmakers. "news of the world" was owned by the parent company of fox news. greg talcott is live in london with this story. >> reporter: it basically comes down to what james murdoch knew and when he knew about the full extent of this phone hacking scandal. now, in testimony before a committee of the parliament here on tuesday murdoch said that it was just his belief early on, it was limited to one reporter on "the news of the world" staff, and he said he was unaware of an e-mail which seemed to indicate at least one other staffer knew about it. last night the former editor of the paper and its top lawyer said that murdoch was, in fact, mistaken, that he was made aware of that e-mail. here is what british prime minister david cameron had to say today about this latest dispute. >> clearly, james murdoch has got questions to answer in parliament, and i'm sure that he will do that. and, clearly, news international has got some big issues to deal with and a mess to cl
what happened with the murdoch family and james murdoch and where it goes from here. >> it's a fascinating story. the murdochs basically drew a line in the sand at the hearings in britain a couple days ago. there's a lot of terrible things going on, a lot of people are culpable, but we didn't know about it. they did a good job i thought. the problem with the story, it's got to stand up. if it stands up, they escape. if it doesn't, they're in big trouble. some of the executives blamed, are saying, hey, we told james murdoch, james murdoch didn't understand why they paid people off, he was new at the job, he agreed to go along with it. the legal manager and the former editor of the "news of the world," two very senior executives at news international have issued aut!ñ statement say that's not true, we actually briefed him in detail on, he knew exactly what was happening. it's not clear if that's the sort of start or trend and people are concerned and say the murdochs got it all wrong and they were lying basically to parliament, then they're in big trouble. >> with all you kn
of this scandal as editor of "news of the world" and of course the paper owned by rupert murdoch who can throw around a lot of political influence when it comes to british politics endorsed cameron for prime minister and then cameron takes office, hires the former officer of "news of the world" which i bet he wishes he hadn't and then the guy arrested today, which you mentioned. >> "news of the world" is this tabloid newspaper. it's as if the president of the world would go pick this man from a newspaper and say now you're press secretary. things are just different in britain, it seems. >> true, they play a much bigger role in the newspaper world more than the united states. i think it also points up, you know, the tactics. it was the same "news of the world" last year that did that sting with the fake shake of a reporter impersonating a person asking fergie for money on television. it's the same fabrication that's not so funny when it's applied to hacking into the voicemails or phones of ordinary people. as you know, what really made this scandal take off and led to murdoch's decision to clos

. >>> media mogul rupert murdoch and his son james have bowed to pressure. they will appear before parliament on the hacking scandal. rebecca brooks agreed to testify but the murdochs initially balked. some u.s. lawmakers are also calling for federal investigations into allegations news corp journalists hacked into the voice mail accounts of september 11th victims. senator robert menendez, a new jersey democrat, wrote to attorney general eric holder saying the possibility this happened is quote, horrifying. republican congressman peter king of new york described the alleged hacking as unjustifiable and parasitic. has news international responded to the 9/11 allegations? >> yes, they have. it's really important to point out that this stems from a report in a tabloid article last sunday here in the uk. in that report there was an unnamed source that spoke to an unnamed former police officer who alleges that he was approached by "news of the world" to tap the victims' phones from 9/11 and he said he denied it. very, very thin but it has gained some traction and that's why we're seeing u.s. lawma
. late night comedians are not about to let the rupert murdoch pie-throwing contest fade into memory. >> i was horrified. he is 80 -- he can't digest pie! the instant murdoch was hit with the pie, news corp. stock spiked, regaining $395 million in market value in five minutes. this is brilliant! he needs to be hit with more pies! perhaps a scalding mincemeat or savory steak and kidney or snout and pancreas. >> what about england's second most powerful man -- david cameron -- who -- whose hiring of andy coulson as press secretary despite his rencently resigned after the first count of allegeds. >> how can he smell a rat when he has one in his midst? >> that was awesome! that's your c-span? i imagine the prime minister never had a chance. >> i've asked this question once already. i can set the answer to music if you like. just once in a while it would be nice to hear a little bat squeak of responsibility from the party opposite. i don't recall every single conversation i had. and you would be mad to try and pretend that you do. >> england is awesome! >> certainly was fun to watch some
